Simple Elegance: A Historic Rebirth at a National Shrine in Williamsburg, VA

DMA-Floors-Lady-of-Walsingham

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham at Saint Bede Catholic received a complete interior renovation. This project began January 27, 2019 as a fundraising campaign called “Restore the Holy House.”  Saint Bede reported, “major portions of the interior [that] have reached the end of their intended lifespan.” There are still opportunities on their website to support the effort.

DMA Floors Project Manager Millie Rice and her team partnered with Henderson, Inc.to completely revamp this historic building with the guidance of Construction Manager Bernie Mills and Superintendent Matt Hipple. The collaborative team effort put the design concept together from scratch, to create the beautiful layout for the porcelain tile floors, provided by International Tile and Marble.

The new design boasting an elegant aesthetic and a simple, Old World ambience. The rounded finished edges of the raised platform were made possible by Schluter Systems Radius Profile. Due to the age of the building and the state of the concrete subfloor, self-leveling was performed by DMA using Mapei’s self-leveling system. This created a near-flawless substrate that allowed for a painless installation.

The outstanding team put together by Henderson, Inc. finished the entire renovation with zero items on the punch-list, which DMA Floors was privileged to be a part of. In the words of Henderson, Inc., this project truly went “Beyond the Building” to provide a gorgeous chapel for the local Williamsburg residents.

This isn’t the first project that involved collaboration between DMA Floors and Henderson, Inc. In November, 2019, we announced the completion of High Street Luxury Apartments and the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Resort. If you are looking for a seamless renovation, this team has a proven success rate!

Multi-family Living in Luxury

DMA Floors Kitchen and Bath Luxury in Williamsburg, VA

For the first time in 30 years, the annual supply volume of apartment rentals has peaked due to lifestyle renters: people who rent by preference, not by necessity.

They are financially stable, have disposable income, enjoy on-site conveniences, and seek modern amenities, including upscale kitchen and bathrooms. This trend cascades into housing for college students and timeshare resorts.

Two properties that meet the needs of this growing segment are High Street Luxury Apartments and The Holiday Inn Club Vacations Resort timeshare, both in Williamsburg.  DMA Floors is pleased to be on the team to bring these plans to life.

High Street Luxury Apartments

DMA Floors and Henderson, Inc. teamed up to complete the High Street Luxury Apartments for Commonwealth Properties in Williamsburg.

We installed Roca ceramic tile for the kitchen backsplashes and Armstrong Luxury Vinyl Tile for the kitchen/living room/bathroom floors.

In the bathrooms we used another Roca tile for the shower and tub walls. Everything came together to create some stunning apartment units, in large part due to the collaboration and coordinated action displayed by Henderson, Commonwealth, Project Manager Millie Rice, and her group. This was a great project for DMA Floors!  #DMAFloors #williamandmary  #ArmstrongFloor #rocatileusa

The Holiday Inn Club Vacations Resort

This high-end resort showcases intricate ceramic tile work by DMA Floors.

Once again, DMA Floors partnered with Henderson, Inc. construction company for a new 4-story building, with 24 villas and six Signature Collection 3-bedroom villas to meet the needs of growing families.

Henderson, Inc. contracted DMA Floors to install floor and wall materials in all units. Featuring a beautiful and sophisticated ceramic tile design, Project Manager Millie Rice, her team of dedicated installers, and support staff worked meticulously to maintain consistency in the patterns and transitions. The shower (pictured here) is from one of the signature units at the resort. The tile is manufactured by Adex and we used Mapei Corporation’s epoxy grout and setting material to complete the installation. #Adex #Mapei
